One thing to note about this species is that it doesn’t have a very unique appearance, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t stunning to look at. It has a relatively uniform black colouring throughout its entire body, which is broken up by white-ish accents especially around the legs. One great characteristic is the fact that its abdomen features dark red hairs that never fail to draw the eye.
This is an appearance that’s grown into, though. As spiderlings, this species takes on a dark grey colour with white hairs throughout its body. As it matures into a juvenile, it darkens in colour, gains the white accents, and starts developing the red hairs.
When it comes to sizing, these tarantulas grow to be big creatures! Adult specimens can easily reach 25cm in legspan, reaching this size in a relatively short amount of time. This big size helps to amplify their lively personalities, really making them one of the more interesting tarantula species.
